When I was in Gummersbach last month, we had a round-table discussion on tech and mobile phones were among the topics we discussed. I did a quick survey from the 23 country reps and asked which is the most popular phone model in their country.
Surprisingly, our quick poll actually guessed the most popular phone of all time. Here’s the run down from what I got from a quick search:
Blackberry by Research in Motion (RIM)
Total Units Sold: 12 Million
Life span: 1999 – present
LG Chocolate by LG Electronics
Total Units Sold: 15 Million
Life span: 2006 – present
Total Units Sold: 50 Million (between 2004 – 2006 only)
Life span: 2004 – present
Nokia 3310 (also called 3330 in other regions)
Total Units Sold: 126 Million
Life Span: 2000 – 2005
Total Units Sold: 200 Million
Life span: 2003 – present
In comparison, Apple CEO Steve Jobs recently announced that they’ve already sold 2 Million iPhones in the last 6 months. At that rate, Apple’s looking to hit their 10 Million mark in 2 more years.
